Als ich wisse das Morgen der Erde enden wuerde, immernoch wurd ich mein Apfelbaum pflanzen.

Even if I knew the world would perish tomorrow, I would still plant my apple tree. - Martin Luther

"Factory work's easier on the back, and I don't mind it, understand, but a man becomes what he does. Got to watch that. That's why I keep at farmin' although the crops haven't ever throve. It's the doin' that's important." Madison Wheeler in Blue Highways by William Least Heat Moon

Imagining life without children

The kids are gone this morning at a sleepover. Although having a quiet cup of coffee and time to sit and read without being interupted was lovely, I'm glad that I'm headed out to pick them up soon. Life without children is just too quiet. I find myself looking ahead to the time when they'll be gone and wishing it would never come. I will miss them entirely too much. So thankful for those two little blessings.
